After huge success with Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and A way out, the sometimes irreverent, but always passionate Josef Fares and his team at Hazelight Studios are back in search of a different kind of relationship with It takes twoUnveiled at last year’s EA Play Live event, It Takes Two is a co-op game that follows a couple who have turned into puppets who are struggling with their relationship troubles if they want to return. With release just around the corner, EA and Hazelight have provided players with a gameplay overview trailer narrated by Fares himself; a look at the sheer variety of gameplay mechanics and genres players can expect and how the game and story are intertwined. Watch the full trailer below.
Fares says that It takes two is a co-op action adventure platformer that takes special care that the gameplay engages the story and the story. Sorry for some players, this is another like A way out what you need a partner for, online or next to you on the couch. You cannot play this solo.
Gameplay variation is “insane,” Fares said, saying there are no comparable scenarios. “Every scene is unique.” He also reiterates that the story will always reflect gameplay and vice versa. As an example, he shows a moment in a tree, where protagonists May and Cody become part of a war between the squirrels and the wasps (thanks to the fact that Cody has brought in a nest). One wields a juice thrower, while the other fires a match gun, which in combination can cause explosions. They will have to work together to solve puzzles and defeat the wasps, but the gameplay experience will differ depending on who is playing as which character.
Another uses magnets as gameplay elements to highlight their lost appeal to each other, while yet another allows one to manipulate time and the other the ability to clone themselves, again a reflection of elements of each character and their relationship to each other.
Highlighting Fares’ recent comments about obsession with replayability as a farce in games (where most players have been proven not to even complete games, let alone replay them), he also says, “ instead of collectibles and other shiny shit To have, we have the world interactive and fun. “This culminates in minigames to find and compete in the levels. This part is accompanied by some quick glances at different levels, minigames and other details, worth seeing if you’re curious are to It takes two
